“We decided to go out-of-the-box on creativity,” said John Neville, Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) senior manager. “So, we opened the contest to any DynAviation employee’s child under 16 years of age, and received some amazing submissions.”
Congratulations to the winner of the contest, Kylie, the four year old granddaughter of DynAviation’s Mike Bryant who works on the NASA Aircraft Maintenance and Operations Support (AMOS) contract. She drew an airplane with hand imprints for wings, accompanied by the slogan, “Safety is in your hands.”
“When viewing Kylie’s submission, knowing a four year old girl’s hands represent a safe passage – symbolizing the wings of an aircraft – definitely elicits an emotional response from me, and I hope it does for everyone,” said Neville. “Your safety and your coworker’s safety is truly in your hands. You and your teammates have to build the foundation and the culture that reflects your attitude, belief, and perception of safety.”
DynAviation safety coins have been created from Kylie’s design. As a reward for her winning submission, Kylie was presented with an iPad, a plaque and a DynAviation safety coin.
“I want to also thank the rest of the children who took the time to create and submit their wonderful pictures,” continued Neville. “We had a tie for second place between Bianca and Emma from Fort Hood, who will receive a gift certificate, plaque and safety coin.”
